As you'll hear it's very much personal preference. Any of the "major manufacturers" are putting out quality campers, and you'll find owners of all the different kinds here. It really depends on how you plan to use it.

It's been mentioned before, I'll mention it again: If you're new to "camping", trailer style, consider renting a camper for the weekend. You may find you don't need all the amenities many come with. Or that you just can't live without many.

A lot of people don't want or need a bathroom. Others couldn't imagine a camper without one. Some love having an oven, others really couldn't see themselves baking when camping. Some don't even care to have a fridge.

From there it'll really come down to money and if you want new or used. I have a Bigfoot, which is Dang expensive new. In fact it wan't cheap used. But it was what I really wanted, so I went for it. But the newest I could afford was an early 90s trailer. So it'll really depend. I'd love an Escape or Oliver or Parkliner. But they're just so far out of my financial reach, I don't even consider them, new or used.

I would have to agree with Zach. I've been boondocking for 50 years and it took me most of that time to figure out what I want, what I need and what I can afford. Renting for one or more trips will likely give you some valuable insights. Shop around. Determine what you want before you buy and you're likely to be more more satisfied with your purchase, and use it more often.

FG trailer rentals are extremely rare!
I'm just one step away from being

filthy rich. All I need now is money.

I don't think renting a fiberglass camper would be totally necessary. A stick built would be fine. Just to get a trailer out on the land and see what they think. There are space issues that come up specifically with fiberglass, but just to see what they think of a trailer and all the appliances would be enough.
